THE ROCK ISLAND AUG US, FRIDAY, JULY 11, i90.
IT SflOULD BE BUILT.
That is Vb&i Engineer Marshall
Says of Hennepin.
Htm Report on the Proposed Canal,
Melting Forth It Advantages; and
Favorta- lta Canatraetloa.
United States Engineer Marshall has
ju8t issued a report on the proposed Hen
nepin canal, showing the design of the
waterway and its advantages. The. en--gioeer
The Illinois and Mississippi canal is
designed as a cut-oil or short route
from the upper Mississippi j-iver to Lake
Michigan, in connection with present ex
isting water lines"or improved routes of
greater capacity that have been Contem
plated for years.
The existing water route is: (1) via IN
linois and Michigan canal, 97 miles, to
La Salle; (2) Illinois river from La Salle
to its mouth at the Mississippi river, 235
miles; (3) mouth of Illiuois river tu Rock
river, 287 miles.
The present water line from Chicago to
the mouth of Rock river is 607 miles,
while by way of the proposed Illinois and
Mississippi canal (Hennepin) it will be
only 189 miles, a saving in distance from
Lake Michigan by water to all points on
the Mississippi river above the mouth of
Rock river of 419 miles over existing
water routes. The route via the pro
posed canal will be shorter than via the
Illinois river to all points on the Missis
sippi river above a point seventy-ei;ht
miles by water above the mouth of ibe
Illinois and 209 miles below the mouth of
Above the mouth of Rock river to St.
Paul are 401 miles of river navigation, so
that the proposed canal as a cut-off will
shorten the distance from Lake Michigan
by water to all points- along the upper
missi8sippi river lor 010 miles of Us
course. The Illinois river for fourteen
miles below La Salle forms ODe link in
the proposed water line, but the rest of
the distance, Dinety-seven miles, from
La Halle to Chicago, the route is con
tinued by the Illinois and Michigan canal
a work of much less capacity than the
proposed cans). Boats of the full ca
pacity of the proposed locks for the II
linois and Mississippi canal must stop at
La Salle and transfer cargo to the lees
capacious Illinois and Michigan canal.
To secure, therefore, the full benefits to
be derived from the construction of the
proposed line, either the Illinois and
Michigan canal should be enlarged to
similar capacity, or still , better, the gov
ernment extend the capacious channel
now nearing completion on the lower Il
linois river to Lake Michigan via the
upper Illinois and DesPlaines rivers, and
the canal across the Chicago divide.
Without such work the proposed Il
linois and Mississippi canal will be simply
a local nignway or importance to the im
mediate neighborhood of its channel, and
a pagwator of local freights, but regarded
as a national highway of- but compara-
h'oij Bumii HigDiucauce.
While the construction of this canal.
even on the present basis, must affect
freight charges on all lines of transporta
tion in competition with it by reducing
them to nearly the cost of water trans
portation, it cannot be of such value to
commerce as would be possible were the
line through tout of greater and more
satisfactory capacity. The tonnage car
ried by the Illinois and Michigan canal at
present is about one million tons per an
num. and although this is a large ton
nage u does not probably exceed one-
third or one-fourth the capacity even of
mis small canal, but if anywhere near
half the capacity of the proposed Henne
pin canal were added to its business this
smaller canal would be overtaxed, but, in
addition to the business that will
or may be furnished to it from the pro
posed work, that offered by the improved
lower Illinois must also be cared for by
this inferior highway, which evidently
will still further reduce the value of both
the proposed canal and the lower Illinois
river improvement, the yalue of both
works being gauged by the inferior con
nection. The commercial advantages of this
route have been fully discussed in former
reports, notably by Major W. n. H. Ben
yuard, in the annual report of the chief
of engineers for 1883; by Major Han
bury, in the report of the same officer in
1886, and by the board of engineers,
specially constituted to consider its re'a
tions to commerce, in 1886, in its report
already referred to. It is unnecessary,
therefore, to go in detail'intQ that ques
tion again, but a few observations may,
perhaps, b proper here, although the
law limits this investigation to plans and
estimates, and not to questions of merit
It is a fact too well known to require
extended discussion that water routes
generally when tbey come into competi
tion with transportation by land are the
most efficient and certain regulators of
freight charges known. When free and
of sufficient capacity they absolutely re
strict freight charges to something near
the actual cost of water transportation.
The Erie canal or much smaller dimen
sions and capacity than the proposed
canal now absolutely restricts freight
charges on grain and other products from
Chicago and Duluth to the seaboard dur
ing the season of navigation to leas than
what is generally charged by the railroads
from west of the Mississippi river to Chi
cago, less than one-third the distance.
The freight charges from points on the
Illinois river and Illinois and Michigan
canal to Chicago, as shown by the board
of engineers in 1886, are similarly con
trolled by this latter water line.
The same results precisely must follow
the construction of a short water route
from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi
whether a pound of freight is carried by
the canal or not. The railroads must
Ox their rates for freight at or below the
profitable cost of the cheaper water trans
portation, or it will be carried by water.
It is evident then that this canal should
be built, and it will as a public necessity
Borne day be built. Whether it be con
structed, however, by the general gov
ernment, by a state, or by corporations
or individuals is a very important and
material question. If by a state or any
other agency than the general government
it will not probably be free from tolls, and
cannot therefore possibly subserve its
purposes long. It strong rivals by de
pressing freights below a paying basis
even for water carriage would soon make
the line a burden to its owners, and as a
commercial or money making enterprise
It would soon fall a pray to and be dis
mantled and closed by its rivals, as has
befallen so many canals of that charac
ter. There is nothing so democratic as free
waterways and highways constructed
and maintained by the public for the
people, and every such means will be
necessary to limit and restrain corpora
tions, and are the most effective means
to that end known. As one of the means
to this end the construction of this canal
is fayored here, provided that its utility
be allowed to become evident through
the results that follow the enlargement of
the Illinois and Michigan canal to an
equal capacity, or better still, as render
ing this enlargement unnecessary, the
prosecution to completion of the Illinois
river scheme already begun by the gen
eral government on the lower Illinois, by
which a waterway of sufficient capacity
to accommodate the largest steam Tea
sel that reaches the month of the Illinois
river will be secured from Lake Michi
gan to the Mississippi river.
There is sua another point to which it
is desired to call attention, viz : The
locks proposed for this canal are of ca.
pacify sufficient to pass many steamboats
now existing npon the Mississippi river.
but the bridges along the canal as pro-
pesea give only fifteen teet headway an
der them, which excludes such boats. - If
these bridges were all made pivot bridges
these steamboats could use theToute
and its utility be very materially extend
ed. The cost of the toute would be in
creased, ht wever, abont one-quarter of a
million dollars by this change, which in
my opinion would be justified. Steam
boats of 200-toHS register could use the
route if this modification were made. The
canal, as designed, is for navigation by
barges and tugs only.'
Pajaaaater Eiotarrea, of Deere at Co,
Telia of HI Defalrattaaa What
The fall of young Lof green, paymaster
at Deere & Co.'s works Moline, whose ar
rest on the charge of embezzlement was
recorded in the Argus of last night, is
unfortunate and sad, and it affords a
moral which, while dearly bought, should
be heeded by other young men who may
be plunging into a similar fate.before it is
too lute. The Dipatch of last evening
says of the case:
The young man is but twenty-one years
of age, the son of Mr. A. Lof green, the
veteran gatekeeper at the works, and his
arrest on so grave a charge is sad indeed.
Charley bad always been an apt boy,
swift and perfect in mathematics, and at
the age of seventeen, after taking a busi
ness college course, be took charge of the
pay roll and bad presided over it ever
since, his punctuality .and accuracy at all
times winning for him the esteem of his
employers But it was the old, old story
The boy fell into bad company, partook
of many of its evil ways, and under such
liiOunce. his downfall was an inevitable
consequence, considering the great temp-

plHced in handlit g between $8,000 and
f 10,000 every week, at the nominal sal
ary of $45 per month, the amount be was
receiving at the time.
When the reporter called upon Charley
in his cell at the police headquarters, the
young appeared to look upon bis trouble
calmly. He showed no perceptible re
serve and conversed much as be did on
every day occasions. When asked to
explain bis difficulty he said:
"I don't blame anybody for tbis tron
ble but myself. Preferring to let the law
take its course, I made the facts in the
case known to the company myself yes
terday. For the past week the pay roll
has been in Fred Cooper's hands, and it
was but a question of a short time before
the shortage would have been discovered.
I told Mr. Simmon about it, and told him
to tell Mr. Nason, which he did. The
stockholders held a conference and had
a talk with me, and I gave a candid ex'
planation of the felony, expressing my
determination to face the law. The
shortage was 9 599 though when I come
to think I believe that is not all, as there
are two orders at home, the amount of
which I cannot Tell without my book. I
dont know whether I can pay back the
money or not. My father has some money
and could have probably made things
all right had I had the courage to tell
him in time, but I couldn't do that, and
it is too late now. The money was
taken in small amounts on each payday.
If I am to go to the penitentiary I want
to go right away, and no delays. I am
to blame, and I must pay the penalty.
Even if I sbould't go to the penitentiary
I could never remain in Moline."
"Haven't you any of the money you
took from the company left?"
"No. it is all spent."
"How was it Bnt in gambling?"
"Well, I suppose I got into a bad
crowd. Yes, I got to gambling and spent
the money. I wish now that I bad never
bad the situation I have held for nearly
five years, handling half a million a year.
I was doing it too on small wages, get
ting but f 45 a month for work that was
worth at least $100 a month! I have
worked a great many nights and Sundays
during the past three years, and every
employe of the works will say that I have
worked bard. I bave worked day and
night to get the pay ro'l out so the men
could have their pay before the shop shut
down holidays, and I am content that
they appreciated my work."
Lofgreen bad his preliminary hearing
this morning and was held in bonds of
$2,500 which he furnished.

James Robinson, the athletic trainer at
Princeton college, Princeton, N. J, says:
"I have found it Imperative to have
sure and simple remedies on hand in case
of cuts, bruises, strains, sprains, colds,
rheumatism, etc. Shortly after entering
upon my profession in this country. I
discovered such a remedy in Allcock'a
porous plasters. I tried other plasters,
but found them too harsh and irritating.
Allcock'a porous plasters give almost
instantaneous relief, and their strength
ening power is remarkable. I bave cured
scores of students and friends of sore
throats and colds by the application of
tnese piasters on the throat and chest. I
bad a pupil who contracted a severe col 1
which settled on bis kidneys. I placed
two plasters over the kidneys, and
the result was that in six hours he
was entirely well. In cases of tfesk
back, put two plasters on the small
of the back, and in a short time
you will be capable of quite severe ex
erase, in "sprint" and "distance" race
and jumping, the muscles or tendons in
the legs and feet sometimes weaken.
This can invariably be relieved by cutting
the plaster in narrow strips so as to give
free motion, and applying on muscles af
fected. I bave used Allcock'a plasters success
fully in walking matches when the legs
became tired and swollen with over ex
ertion, by covering the important mus
cles with them.
It Is my unreserved opinion an opin
ion formed after considerable exper
ience that Allcock'a porous plasters are
a most efficacious and valuable remedy.
Beware of imitations, and do not be
deceived by misrepresentation. Ask for
Allcock a, and let no solicitation or ex
planation induce you to accept a substi
tute. Allcock'a corn and bunion shields ef
fect quick and certain relief.
He: Well, I suppose it's all settled; I

He: Do you know the name the boat
bears? She: Cora, of course. He: No,

A NEWSPAPER HN THE " ROCKIES.
Enterprian tg Business Manage
Got His Specials for Nothing. ' s
In the winter of 1 4-S5l was' managing
ediun-, city editor and ;tbe entire reportorial
corps of a little dail; ' paper tn a Colorado
mining town. We afeo had three printers, a
business manager aud an office boy, who act
ed as mailing clerk an i carrier.' The business
manager filled in his leisure time running a
cattle ranch and a cot 1 mine. .. :,,"--
The town had a "b mm" a ywar or two be
fore, but tbe "boom" was gone and the place
was left with two dail r newspapers and hard
ly business for one weikly. It was hard sled
ding. Associated Prtss dispatches were out
of the question. We lad to depend npon the
Denver papers, which jeaebed Us the same
evening, for our telegraphic news. Our read
ers didn't like this, of : course, but it was the
best we could do, and as we were all holding
on like ' grim death i or the return of tbe
"boom,1' which was a ways six months ahead
of us, nobody cared U ijsay too much;
But occasionally th trains got snowed up
on the Pass for a weel: or more, and then we
were in a box. On or e of these occasions we
hadn't hod a mail for four days, and things
were looking blue. There wasn't any local
news to 8)eak of. The business manager sug
gested a chapter from the Bible with a "scare"
head. He thought it ould be news out there,
and I guess he was r if lit.
Thetown had gas a id water works and a
big hotel as reminden. of its departed boom,
and it also had a tele hone line which con
nected with another 1. ttle town, thirty miles
further up in the moon tains, on a branch of
the same railroad. Tiie telephone in the sta
tion thirty miles away was connected every
night witli the one in our ofllce before the
central ofllce closed, that in case of an ac
cident in the mines wt could got the news.
Several times, while using this telephone, I
had noticed that, late at night when all was
still, the clicking of the telegraph instrument
in the (station up in the tiiountaiiui could be
distinctly beard over t ie wire. This suggested
au ' idea. The railrot.d wire was used as a
news wire late at it igbt. If we had anybody
with an ear acute eu ugh to read that faint
ticking in 'the telephone instrument we could
learn what was going on over the wires. The
business manager had been an operator, and
a good one, back in the States. He tried the
instrument and found that the scheme would
work. The next mot ning we bad a column
ff "specials," includii g two or three items of
Washington news, wh icq were of special in
terest just then, as every second man in tbe
town was a candidate for some office under
tbe incoming administ ration.
The editor of the rival paper rushed to the
telegraph office to inq lire what it meant. He
was told that we had leceived nothing jover
the wire. With the ti-ain snowed up on top
of the pass "faking" f:-om the Denver papers
was out of the question. Yet there were the
dispatches, and unmistakably genuine, too.
The wires had been ta iped, that was certain,
but where, when, how f The railroad people
ordered an investigation, but discovered
nothing. Nobody thought of the clicking
instrument in the closed railroad station
thirty miles away and the marvelous carry
ing power of the telephone in that clear, still
Our brother editoi- on the rival sheet
thought it was a "dead cold fake," but be
was afraid "to say too much about it, as he
bail run out of paper s nd we had him at our
mercy, at least until a train got In. Of
course the secret was jealously guarded in
the office, but the 's) cials" were kept np
until tbe train got thr High. Then we quit.
The business manage- was a conscientious
man, and didn't believo iu stealing news when
it could lie obtained in any other way. Be
sides, he objected to d the work. M. O. M.

Gambling- and Barg-Hna;.
Gambling and burbling always occupy a
good deal of public attention during the
course of a year. There is not a very obvi
ous connection between the two, yet the
subtle moralist may find an association.
Both are pursuits of men who ought to be
otherwise and more profitably engaged.
Both are the express ons of a desire to ac
quire riches at one t troke or, at the most,
two strokes and to a void the monotony of
! continuous labor. An i both are the results
of radical misconcepti ns on tbe part of the
Individual practitionei a.
Nobody ever gets rich by gambling; but it
is open to demonstrat ion that, if tbe same
amount of skill, of cerebral energy, of mental
dexterity, and of acuta perception, were ex
pended in productive work of some kind as is
expended on games of chance, the reward
would be substantial ar d certain. Again, the
burglar who burglersc n a large scale Is play
ing against fearful aids, and is certain to
come to grief sooner or later; while, if he
burglers on a small scale, he can but snatch a
precarious and insignificant pittance, con
siderably below what be might easily earn by
legitimate industry in lawful hours.
There is, perhaps, a c barm of excitement in
burglary which fascinates the professional
outlaw, even as the ext itement of the turf oi
of cards enthralls the rofessional gamester.
But to take a plain, practical view of both
pursuits, and one apart altogether from the
ethics of the matter, is to lead one to the con
clusion that neither game is worth tbe candle.
The law, of course, takes -other views of
both. ' The burglar in bilges in his exciting
career at the expeuse o ' the community, and
injures everybody, including himself. The
gambler indulges in hit habitual excitement
without injuring direi My anybody fcet him
self and those depended t on him, who, from a
social point of view, may be regarded as
part of himself. The burglar, therefore, is
objective in his existet ce; tbe gambler, sub
jective. To Hit it otherwise, the burglar is a
common enemy, and the gambler nobody's
enemy but his own.
The greaWact whicii tbe community has
to consider, and the law to provide for, is
that the burglar U.nnu who is in permanent
rebellion against society, aud isj by the very
nature of his employment, both degraded and
desperate. All the Yeiir Round.
Mice Liberated by But.
A citizen of Greensboro, Ga., who was in
the habit of setting a trap iu his dining reom
to catch rats, hearing a queer noise there a
few nights ago, went 'down to investigate.
He reports the state of things tlius: "About
a dozen small mire had lieon. caught in tbe
trap. This was surrou tiUl by four or five
big rats, which hail dragged it to one corner
and were holding a cons 1 1 tut ion. As T looked
in, alarmed by the ligli '., they hurried their
preparations to a close. One of the big fel
lows seized the door of he trap between bis
teeth; another rat seize. I him by the tail, an
other and another quic dy took hold; a sud
den pull was given, ami quicker than I can
relate the door flew bad:, the mice scampered
out, and before I could walk across the room

had disappeared, lea in;; the trap in tbe cor
